A fireball at night, as bright as a crescent moon - 14.8.2022 at 23.11 Ulvila Observation number 109467

Visibility III / V

Kalle Luotola, Porin Karhunvartijat

I tried to photograph the heart fog and the soul fog, and in that noise, this fireball, possibly the Perseid, was recorded on the camera. An interesting green color was captured in the image before fading.

Komea meteori! Vihreä huntu saattaa johtua siitä että yläilmakehän tuulet ovat alkaneet levittää "savua". Jari Luomanen ikuisti samankaltaisen ilmiön vähän aikaa sitten.
